"A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves."

It's true, weather can effect our moods and our world. Watching clouds billow and storms form can be both frightening and exciting...

Dark skies over the Sierras in the summer can mean sudden drops in temperature and an onslaught of hail... white clouds building over the bottoms in winter along the Missouri River could mean snow is on the way...

It's all part of life and what we experience, but for a photographer it's a dream. Ansel Adams, one of the best landcape photographers of our time, is noted not just for photographing a mountain, but the weather. He watched weather and knew that it could easily make or break an image due to it's impact on the lighting conditions. Photographer or not, weather is all around us and something we can't get enough of... be it on the local news, our iPhone apps, or our daily conversations.

"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."  ~John Ruskin
